We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Amy H. Sturgis will be guest editing an issue of Apex Magazine in 2017. Appearing in August of next year, this issue will feature Native American and First Nations authors.

Amy is not planning to hold an open submissions period for her issue, choosing instead to solicit stories from authors she feels would be a good fit. She is open to hearing your recommendations, so please contact her via her website if there is a Native American/First Nations author you think she should consider for the issue!

Her announcement from her website is below.


I’m delighted to announce that I’ve accepted an invitation to guest edit an issue of Apex Magazine (scheduled for August 2017). I will be soliciting new stories that showcase the rich depth and diversity of science fiction, fantasy, and horror penned by Native American/First Nations authors. Apex Magazine routinely provides 12,000 words of original fiction per issue, but my special issue will deliver 20,000.

My long relationship with Apex dates back to the fourth issue (Winter 2005) of its print-edition days, when it was Apex Digest. It is with the greatest excitement that I look forward to this important project.

If you have questions or recommendations, you are welcome to contact me via my website.
